Pam Moxley, a self-taught Artist, has spent the last twenty-one years pursuing her fascination with photography and mixed media. She is best known for her taut black and white and sepia-toned images which are simple in composition yet complex in theme. Her works are inspired by her own childhood and watching the growth of her four children. Each of her works are created to remind the viewer of their own time as a child, when they embraced life with an unbridled moxie.

Once she is finished with the photographic component, Pam continues to create through several other mediums. Her mixed media works are individually created with multiple layers. She starts by painting a dimensional board with several layers and textures of paint. She then uses an image transfer process that she has developed to add the photograph to the board. Pam finishes each of the works with a poured layer of high gloss resin. The combination of these techniques brings each of these individual works of art to life. Mixing the distress of the transfers with the brilliance of the resin creates a beautiful mix of nostalgia and high concept polish.
Pam’s work is held in many private and public collections throughout the United States including the Pinnacle Bank Collection, City of Atlanta collection, the APG collector’s portfolio, Blackbird Technologies, MOCA GA, and the Southeast Museum of Photography. Pam’s work has also been featured in films and national magazines, including Decor and Traditional Home.
